Emotional Freedom Technique EFT is a widely recognized tool for better integration of cognitive functions at many different levels, including the energetic body, emotion, and even analytic thought. Our visceral cognition is particularly receptive to tapping as a means of better self regulation, and I use tapping on a daily basis in my practice to deal with the consequences of any form of stress, including birth trauma. EFT is a self help tool, which I widely recommend. There is a little bit of a learning curve to using the tool, and many people who try it don’t stick with it long enough to reap its benefits. This has been something of an issue for me to solve, and I am excited to finally offer a solution.
Standard care for the types of soft tissue trauma which respond very well to Manual Therapy is the use of corticosteroids. In addition to the contamination issues recently uncovered in manufacturing facilities in the United States, their long term efficacy has been drawn into question. In a recent study by Bill Vicenzino of the University of Queensland, Physical [...]
Neurons distill sensory information from the body and from remembered patterns, and presents the result as thought. It is widely recognized that thought is the effect of the harmonization of synaptic firing. A group of neurons fire within a window of time, and this information is then integrated in a neuron at its Axion. Millions of these [...]
LINK: 100 ITEMS THAT DISAPPEAR IN AN ECONOMIC COLLAPSE
Although much of the list is focused on long term shortages which we are unlikely to encounter in the US, as I live in earthquake country I find it highly informative. In the 1906 quake, people were still living in tents a year later. Based on superstorm Sandy, [...]
Visceral reflexes are the most ancient cognitive mechanisms present in the human body. These reflexes regulate internal processes such as digestion and the function of the liver, processes which collectively are known as Homeostasis. Optimally, life at this layer swings between digestion and absorption of nutrients and energy, growth, restoration, reproduction and protective responses. For example, light is absorbed by a plant and then converted into sugar, which is at a later time fabricated into structures used for maintenance and growth. These processes change through time, but remain fixed in function regardless of where they occur, and are therefore time, but not spatially dependent. Viewed from the perspective of the three dimensional space they embody, they occupy a point, and can therefore be categorized as point patterns of the expressions of life. In humans, these point patterns are expressed in the cyclical processes of our organs, our viscera. Visceral processes cyclically change through time, independently of where the person happens to be.
I mention this paper because it has a pretty clear overview of the math involved in the bio-mechanics of human movement.
